Oceanfront Dress

April 15, 2010

oceanfront-dressI’ve had my eye on this dress from DownEast Basics for a while. I even saw it in my mall & tried it on. They didn’t have the right size in the color I wanted. Plus I’m still undecided.

It is not tall-sized, so of course it’s not quite as long on me as on the model. But long enough to go past that awkward mid-calf area. I work with the little kids at my church, so I’m looking for a couple longer options to keep things covered and comfortable while getting down on their level.

I do like the empire waist, which gives us tall or long-waisted girls a little leeway. Doesn’t the word leeway look weird? I’ve never written or typed it. Seriously. It looks odd.

Keeping my eyes out for a couple (knee length or longer) dresses or skirts this spring & summer. If you come across anything great, please give me a holler.
